Over 15k rounds of magnums through a $500 gun and it still shoots great to this day, I'd say you got your money's worth out of it. Let's be reasonable, no gun can be made that never wears out. Just buy a new one. Do you spend $800 on a set of tires and expect them to last 500,000 miles? Of course not. You get 50,000 miles if you're lucky, then shell out the money to buy a new set. Sometimes, I feel sorry for the gun manufacturers with respect to the expectations of their customers. You spent more than $3,500 in ammo that you shot through this gun--that's 7 times the cost of the gun.
